Anyone doing hypnobirthing for the first time like me??


I am starting my hypnobirthing class at the end of the month and I am super excited. I have done a ton of research into various birthing methods and feel that this is the right one for us. I will only be 17 weeks when we start but since I live in New England I wanted to get the classes out of the way before the snowy season starts.

Anyone elso doing hypnobirthing/hypnobabies or a similar program?

I used Hypnobirthing with my first. Started late at 34 weeks. It was the best thing I ever did. Even though I had to be induced and my baby had deceleration I truly believe that the hypnobirthing techniques are the only thing that kept me from needing a c section.

I did natal hypnotherapy when I had my first and it was lovely. You can read my birth story below in my signature if you'd like to know how it went.

I am 27 weeks. I practice my relaxation techniques nightly. Sometimes I listen to the birth affirmations/ rainbow relaxation cd, sometimes OH reads me the rainbow relaxation. I also have been practicing my surge breathing in various positions while sitting, laying or sitting on the birthing ball. OH is also practicing relaxation prompts while I do my breathing practice. The nightly relaxation is helping so much. We use to watch tv every night, now I can't wait to practice my techniques each evening. The techniques are also helping me manage stress in my life.

Now I find the claims of a "pain free" birth too good to be true, for those of you who had births with hypnobirthing, hypnobabies or natal hypnotherapy what was your experience?
